Coach Joyner's recap-

Is there a better way to end a career than at a state tournament? Kobe has meant a great deal to Glenwood golf the past 4 years and I thank him for his contributions. 

On Thursday, Kobe struggled to get off the tee and it seemed like he hit every single tree on the course. I'm really proud of the way he fought through the day. He played really well around the green, but needed 1 putts for pars only hitting 3 greens all day. He finished the day +10, 82 in a tie for 25th.
